Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Mark on Thursday, April 7, 2011 at 5:04am.

A raindrop (mass 1.00 g) is travelling at a speed of 40m/s when it hits the surface of 100 g of water contained in a drinking glass. What is the change in temperature of the water in the glass if we assume that a) all the kinetic energy of the raindrop is converted to energy that changes the water's temperature, and b) the water in the glass and the raindrop was at the same original temperature?
